They say it takes 10 years to be an overnight sensation…"If that’s the case, then ShySpeaks is right on the verge of you knowing her name. Shy is a hip hop and spoken word artist, poet and speaker who has shared the stage with so many greats — Tye Tribbett, Torey Lanez, Mail Music…the list goes on and on. She’s even been on songs and albums with the likes of Kirk Franklin and Lecrae. 

She’s also a leader who often finds herself on the frontlines of education and literacy advocacy work.

Christened as a quintessential renaissance voice, Shy is sought after by some of today’s top recording artists and organizations for her songwriting, custom poetry, and speaking skills. 

In this conversation, you’ll learn about: 
  • How Shy learned about not needing outside validation to know her worth in her space
  • How creatives can add value to your industry 
  • The importance of relating with the people at your job before you trying to share the Gospel

Devika Kornbacher is a brilliant technology attorney and partner in Houston, Texas.  She started her career working in ministry serving teens and young adults after graduating Cum Laude with a B.S. in Engineering.  Devika later successfully transitioned into the field of engineering.  While working as an engineer she was reminded of her childhood dream to be an attorney and went on to receive her J.D. from Harvard Law School.  Devika is a remarkable actress and entertainer, a thoughtful and incredibly generous sister and friend.  I see her as brave and fearless in the pursuit to be obedient to the places and spaces where God has called her.
